Do you ever have the urge to make something that serves no purpose and has no reasoning behind it other than ‘just because’?

My banana basque was one of these mad ideas


as was a teeny tiny mouse with it’s house – (Mr D&D couldn’t quite figure out why I was printing cheese wallpaper for that one, my answer ‘just because’!)


here’s another photo of the mouse so you can see just how tiny he is:


Well today I’ve been working on another of my ‘just because’ projects.  Did you think I was going to show you yet?  Nope, sorry, it’s not quite ready for showing, but be assured it’s the maddest one yet!

Something to look forward to



Minion, mini-Minion and mini-mini-Minion

I was spending a lovely few minutes browsing on Etsy and what should jump out of the page shouting “Pick me….pick me!” but this crochet pattern for a Minion.  The pattern is for two different Minions, but this one was my favourite.


I must admit to making a few changes to the pattern, simply because I didn’t have the exact colours required and I didn’t have any toy eyes so I crocheted the first row of the eye with black wool instead.  Not quite as cute, but acceptable.

Once I’d finished, my mind begun whirring and I wondered how easy it would be to make a mini-minion:


And then, just because I could, I made a mini-mini-minion!


The tiny one doesn’t have arms and legs so is more of a jelly bean shaped minion, but I though he was cute anyway.
